This is a follow up to the previous book about Charlotte and Chloe who end up in New Zealand. However are they safe? No, it doesn't do to inadvertently send the wrong message to someone who wants to pay you back.
The story takes us back to England, separation and a court case. However there are friends and family worth their weight in gold.
Julia Franklin did a fine job of narrating again. While I was annoyed by her NZ accent - which wasn't one, on the whole she made the listening experience great.
"An excellent, gripping listen."
After listening to Susan Lewis' 'No Child of Mine' I was really keen to listen to this, the follow up. 'No Child of Mine' was an unexpectedly brilliant audiobook. It was my first Susan Lewis book and I found it absolutely gripping. I would definitely suggest listening to 'No Child of Mine' first as I feel that familiarity with the plot and characters is essential to the enjoyment of this audiobook. As with the previous book, Susan Lewis' storytelling ability is superb, I felt completely involved in the lives of Charlotte and her family and was gripped throughout. Julia Franklin narrates this beautifully, she voices the different characters perfectly and her warm, compelling voice suits this story so well.
"A moving story of the power of love."
It's definitely ranking on my top 10 listens. I won't forget it in a hurry.
The moment Chloey was reunited with her mother Charlotte. I had to hit the pause button and allow myself the good cry I had been putting off.
This was a great performance. Julia Franklin not only gave the characters different voices, she let us in to their mind-sets as well.
This book made me laugh and cry at the same time. There were many gripping moments of suspence, and many exciting moments. I could safely say it was an emotional roller coaster but well worth the ride!
"No child of mine", and "Don't let me go" are the first two books I have read by this author and judging by her story telling ability, I would recommend her to anybody anyday, but prepare to be taken on an unforgetable journey. Keep the tissues close because when you laugh, you will also find your self crying tears of joy, and when you cry, you will find your self really going for it!
"OMG such an intense story........"
I honestly could not stop listening such an emotional roller coaster. I love the narrator, but I've found a new writer too.
Really Really luv this book parts had my choking 😞 would really recommend this a really good listen I really enjoyed it
Yes, I would listen to it again. After reading No Child of Mine, I was desperate to know what happened next and downloaded the sequel immediately. I would happily listen to both again.
Don't Let Me Go tied up the story without feeling like it was constantly retelling No Child of Mine. It left us wondering what the conclusion would be.
I listened to her narration on No Child of Mine and actually found it quite irritating, this story was a huge improvement for me.
This is the first time I have listened to/read any Susan Lewis books but will be reading a lot more after this!
